Possibly the only thing worse than men being terrible is men who think they're above being terrible. The "nice guys." The ones who think they deserve a prize for doing the bare minimum. This woman posted screenshots on Reddit of an innocent situation turned sour after a nice guy got involved.
What started as a woman selling her phone online, ended with a guy trying to “explain the reality of life.” It is a genuinely horrifying situation and the worst part is that many, if not most, women have a story that is similar. When will SOME men stop being the absolute worst?
"Wow that's scary."
"Yeah, I was expecting some whining, but this dude is fucked up."
"Yeah. I'm a dude and I don't give out my address to Craigslist strangers because I don't want to get ROBBED.
This guy is a psychopath."
"Extremely. OP, please tell me you called the cops and reported this? From my experience, the cop can at least call the person and warn the individual not to harass you. In some cases I think just having the threat of authorities taking action can help deter him from pulling this kind of messed up shit in the future.
EDIT: To those who pretty much said 'The police isn't going to do absolutely anything. THIS IS ALSO why women don't report. By perpetuating the belief, 'Well it won't do anything anyway' and By NOT reporting, THAT'S also what continues this horrible cycle.
And even if he hasn't done anything, they can still put the fear of repercussions into this individual. A lot of these people forget that actions have CONSEQUENCES.
I know that victim blaming IS STILL a problem in the U.S. but you never know who's on the other end to help you when you do report something. Remember to see the individual vs. the collective."
"I have a strong feeling he was going to rape you"
"I know! 'Here, let me come over so I can show you how much I won't rape you!'
""Women lie about being harassed. It's all lies to make me look bad." Tells you all you need to know lol."
""let me come over and I bet you I won't even rape"
Me, an intellectual: "hmm that's exactly what a rapist would say"
I'm glad you're safe, that guy is insane"
"Let me show you I won't rape you" is 100% something a rapist would day."
"I read The Gift Of Fear years ago and I remember one thing that if someone says, 'Don't worry, I won't hurt you,' it's a huge red flag. They will hurt you. I have to read it again to be sure though."
"The way he put "rape" in quotes likes its something that doesnt exist... the whole convo is really scary."
"I hired a new employee a few weeks ago as a server, seemed like a nice kid, was in engineering school, personable.
A week into the job, he goes on a rant about how rape isn't real, it's all just girls making it up because they're sluts who don't want to be thought of as sluts.
Fired him. Couldn't believe he was saying it though. Whole staff is looking at him while he's just ranting Alo g while rolling silverware.
They're out there."
Also, can we just WTF at the number of guys who seem to think "I won't rape you!" is setting a really high bar? Because it's...literally the lowest bar. Yay, you're a normal person. Good job."
"Is he a normal person, though?"
"The best things about me:
I won't rape you
I won't mistreat you
I'm a Nice Guy
You won't need any other guys in your life or people even
I'll give you so many of the sex
Fuck you you bitch I was just trying to be nice your ugly"
